Re: “Listenings

While I'm thrilled LISTENINGS has been chosen as a recommended exhibit, I must set the record straight. My name is Heather Gordon and my work is in the LISTENINGS exhibit. But it is not comprised of earth-toned squares or derived from Japanese aesthetics. My paintings explore how the written and spoken word used in combination with song create national identity and patriotic spirit. The works are derived from binary conversions of patriotic songs and poems and are red, white, and blue.

Re: “Lori Waxman's "60 wrd/min art critic" reviews at Durham Arts Council

Leaving my thoughts on Lori Waxman's performance adds one more level of abstraction to an already high-level of abstracted meaning. The relationship between artist - art critic - community excavated from within the bounds of the performance simultaneously denies and celebrates individuality and specificity.

As an artist who was reviewed from among her peers, the process has left me more aware of my role as a "Durham artist", an "abstract artist", a "representational artist", a "female artist", a "painter". I can't help but compare and contrast my review with others and further categorize myself and my art. Lori's performance has helped me describe my specific link in the various classified chains of artists spreading before and after me, within and outside of my local community.

For me, this experience has built personal identity and expanded understanding and relevancy, revealing prejudice within myself concerning how I think about myself as an individual who make things and my role as artist within my environmental scope.
